Annual Science Bash returns to Richmond Public Library

Richmond Public Library is hosting their 12th Science Bash on Nov. 22.

The annual library event is hosted in partnership with local science-based organizations to promote science, technology and STEM-based learning.

This year, participating organizations include STEM Aces Education, UBC Physics and Astronomy Outreach program, Robokids and many more.

“Creative problem-solving and design approaches have proven to be active in engaging students including improving their technological literacy, all of which are critical 21st century skills, said Olivia New, Chief Academic Officer at STEM Aces Education in a press release.

The library says the goal is to have families “explore and learn about the different branches of science and technology.”

Participating organizations will have booths set up with activities for kids such as illusions and hands-on experiments.

Friday, Nov. 22 is a district professional development day.

The free event runs from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Brighouse branch – 7700 Minoru Gate.
